From the book: This day dress in handknit cotton, utterly plain except for the easy picot hems, is adorable with or without the sweet lace collar. I have found various ready-made collars in yard goods shops, but an eirloom lace collar would be enchanting. Or perhaps you could make your own! Pattern is in MinnowKnits, Too. Suggested US 6 straight and double pointed needles, US 6 16" or 24" circular needle, Crochet hook size F, lace collar, and two .5" buttons not included. Gauge is 20 sts = 4".
